I decided to start a new thread, I am sick of the old thread title mentioning my Shimano Acera derailleur issues. LOL
Anyway, went for another bike ride today. Well 2 actually. First one with my son and 2 friends. My friend's wife is a big Athena and hasn't ridden a bike in years. She finally got the courage to go for a ride. She borrowed my spare Fuji mountain bike. The seatpost was a tad small for her but she did okay.
As for the first ride, we went 6.96 miles. The average moving speed was 8.39 mph but the average overall speed was only 4.93. Katie was just having a reallyrough time doing the hills. SHe had to walk up a couple of hills but oveall, she did quite well.
We came back to the house and Mike (Katie's hubby) and I went for another ride. We went 2.87 miles and had an average mph of 10.96. I was pushing myself for that ride.
Here is my new bike that I built up yesterday that I used for today's rides:
